De Afvallers (literal translation: The Slimmers) is a Dutch reality television series which first premiered on SBS 6. The series is a spin-off of the American reality television series The Biggest Loser and the SBS 6 weight-loss series Big Diet, which was canceled after two seasons due to low ratings.[citation needed]

Format[edit]

Over the course of three months, four families must lose as much weight as possible, with the winning family receiving a vacation to a distant destination (Brazil or South Africa). The show attempts to address not only weight problems, but also the psychological problems and life style changes. The participating families have a trainer to guide them through the process.
